    Yeah that's what I'm guessing as well, but at the same rate to see a design so clean and simple on a fairly new vehicle is a bit on the amazing side, lol

    It's a solid axle rear with air ride.
    I don't know what axles are in it.
    It is based on the Expedition.
    And that upper intake plenum spider is factory.

    Hi.
    I fixed the misfire.
    Well, I broke off 5 of the 8 spark plugs in the head. Bought the tool from Leslie, and it worked perfectly. Got all 8 plugs out, and new Autolites are installed, along with a set of Accel coil packs.
    It runs fantastic!
    You should have seen the plume of smoke that went out the exhaust on start up. Each cylinder has PB Blaster and WD-40 in it, because I soaked each spark plug. It all ended up in the cylinders and burnt off on start up.

    I reset the MPG counter on the way back from my parents house and hit 19.2 mpg average. That's the highest I've ever had, and I was driving normally; no hypermiling.

    Unfortunately, it's already time to start thinking about winter.....

    I read somewhere that the plugs come out slightly easier when the engine is not dead cold. Apparently running them for 15 minutes before messing with it increases your odds. Are the Autolite plugs the revised design that doesn't break? I think the Motorcraft plugs are, no idea if others are.

    Unsure, but I have at least another 100k to find out.
